The Importance of a Biblical Worldview

One of the key components to thinking biblically and living out your life as a dedicated and committed Christian is the development of a Bible-based worldview. Your worldview, or the lens through which you view your world and everything in it, ultimately determines your choices about who God is, who you are and how you will live out your time here on earth.

In their book, Who is God? And Can I Really Know Him?, authors John Hay and David Webb point out that ‘when a particular worldview is held by a large number of people, it becomes highly influential, swaying many through media, entertainment, education, and corporate behavior.”

For Christians who are actively involved in missions and evangelism, it is very important that we understand the subject of worldview. The more widely held worldviews of the twenty-first century include Secular Humanism, Socialism, Marxism, New Age, Post-Modernism, Islam and Christianity.

As you interact with others it is important to assess their worldview so that you might be able to understand more about what they perceive to be true. This is another reason why we must be serious students of the emerging global village that is encompassing North America and the world. As Christians we are being faced with the critical questions of both How do we know the truth and in light of that truth, How must we live our lives in relation to that truth?

The truth that Jesus Christ is both Creator, Savior and Lord is foundational to the professing Christian. This is a point that the Bible clearly supports and that the Evangelist/Apologist must drive home to the unbeliever. We must remember as we go that God is Truth and that He reveals His truth to people. We must continue to pray that the Seed of the Word of God find fertile soil in the hearts of men and women and that the truth of Scripture which chronicles the Christ as the One who Was and Is and Is to Come be preached to the uttermost parts of the earth.

Is It Wrong to Judge?

Mark Spence, from Living Waters, teaches on the subject of “Is it Wrong to Judge?”
Download the Entire Episode here: http://tinyurl.com/7gxnyc3

This segment is taken from The Way of the Master TV show, Episode: Brussels

What he is talking about is Relativism.

Relativism is the philosophical position that all points of view are equally valid, and that all truth is left up to the individual to define. This means that all moral positions, all religious systems, all political movements, are truths that are relative to the individual. In other words, there are no right or wrong answers …to anything!

It’s easy to recognize relativism because most of its statements sound intellectual but they are simply ridiculous and self-refuting.

They go something like this:

“You can’t know anything for sure.”
“You shouldn’t judge.”
“Nobody’s right.”
“You can’t know anything.”
“What is true for you is not true for me.”

Now the easiest way to refute statements like these is to simply turn them back around.
You can’t know anything for sure.” -Are you sure of that? -Are you sure you can’t know anything for sure.

“You shouldn’t judge.” -Is that your judgment? -And if you shouldn’t judge, then why are you judging my judgment?

“Nobody’s right.” -Are you right? Are you right that nobody’s right? And if you are right then your wrong about nobody being right.

“You can’t know anything.” -Do you know that? Do you know that you can’t know anything?

“What is true for you is not true for me.” -Well, that’s true. And what is true for me is that you are wrong.

So, the next time you’re confronted with that relativity nonsense just turn it around question their logic and help them to realize that their point of view is just plain silly.

“The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day.” – E. M. Bounds

Never underestimate the role of prayer in the work of evangelism.
